Help with rear noise
Posted 02 July 2003 - 09:50 AM
The car when going 55+ intermittantly gets a very loud chirping from the left rear whose frequency is tied to speed. With the window down it is like a bird jumped inside your head. The noise is usually brought on by hitting a small bump, and the noise immediately goes away when the brakes are applied. When the brakes are released immediately the noise comes back. The e-brake has no impact on the noise. Any ideas? Brakes / wheel bearing / rear diff? Why would this be so intermittant?

P.S. Rear bearings make a loud ROLLING sound like a steel caster rolling across a concrete floor.
